Techno/tribal beats, angrily optimistic mood. Did aim for a rather dirty and organic sound.
I said, I would replace this with an update perhaps, depending on feedback. Well, the feedback has been very positive for the most part, so I leave it as is :)
All sounds generated with the modular synthesizer Om (http://www.nongnu.org/om-synth/).

I really honest to goodness could barely believe you got a lot of those cool sounds. I really gotta go back and look at om for this. I generally don't touch too much linux audio software simply because I just never heard of such a cool finishing touch like this one. Sounds like I'll need to reconsider :-D
Now, getting over the disbelief, I'll just simply say I wanted to hear a lot more changes in the tune. You already know my own style and preference in music... I get bored fast. But that said, you already did a lot of great work with the tune and I especially could appreciate the end. Darn. I personally thought that the drums could use more work... either make em more electronic/bitty or more realistic and perhaps add some very light reverb to if you did go more realistic (Which I'd doubt. The thumpiness is great! no need to). If you go with a more electronic sounding drum set, I would just want more tone to the sounds. To be honest, where they sit now, it sorta clashes with the sound to have half-real drums... I mean... mainly it's just the hats and snares are realistic sounding and the bass drum is totally an artificial thump in my ear. I'm used to hearing a single drum set. Yeah, that must be it. I guess it's okay, but if I have to pull out anything on the track, that's all. *shrug* It really is a fun tune.
